I got the XL in Wasabi to have a light weight, low bulk, cold weather layer for hiking. This is great on all counts. The shell material has resisted light misting rain without a cover layer. Compresses very small. Also the shell feels silky and the color is lovely; lots of compliments. I've been wearing it everywhere since I got it, comfortable over a silk under layer and sweater at temps to 10 degrees.
I wear a size 16 and am big in the hips, and it snugs onto the top of my hips. Would be nice if it were sized to fit *over* the hips of the women who are likely to wear size 16 (i.e. proportionally bigger in the buttulous region). Fits perfectly well everywhere else, room for layers.
